Alexis Denisof books 'Grimm' arc
Angel alum Alexis Denisof is getting back into the supernatural business.
EW has confirmed the actor will appear on the upcoming third season of NBC’s Grimm. He will play a character named Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, a cunning man who also happens to be first cousin of Eric Renard (James Frain). (As you’ll recall, Eric and Sasha Roiz’s Sean Renard are only half-brothers.)
The role reunites Denisof, currently a recurring player on How I Met Your Mother (on which his wife Alyson Hannigan stars), with Angel co-creator David Greenwalt, who also co-created Grimm with Jim Kouf. He is set to appear on a recurring basis during the new season, which kicks off Oct. 25.
